Nice pub in the heart of Greenwich. Being run by Meantime, it obviously has a great selection of Meantime beers, but also other interesting ones (mostly Americans). Tasty food, traditional and modern at the same time. Very friendly service. Well done.
Very nice Meantime pub. As you would expect they have a number of their own beers that you donít see other places and thatís a great thing because Alasdair Hook does not make a bad beer. They also had a decent selection of guests particularly in bottles. Nice knowledgable staff and good food. Will definetely go back if I can, even from halfway across London.

Nice pub with good selection of (standard) continental beers in bottles. On drought are too many mediocre Meantime beers unfortunately.
Off the beaten track in the tourist haven of Greenwich, slightly up the hill on the road shooting off from the large brick clock tower as you leave the village area heading south west. This pub, right next to a traditional public house has a mix of the modern and traditional and itís a predominantly polished wood affair with a stone flagged floor extending right through the ground floor of the building to the quiet beer garden at the rear. Food is served but obviously Meantime ales take a prominence. Other brewery craft ales are also served and thereís a fantastic bottle selection including plenty from the continent, but bring plenty of cash as itís not cheap. This doesnít deter people though.
Located but a short walk from Greenwich train station. Inside it is a fairly large, contemporary pub. The union is the Meantime brewery flagship bar, so unsurprisingly they have a large Meantime selection. They have 9 unique keg lines with predominantly meantime regulars, plus a few seasonals and guest beers. There were also 3 casks taps, all of which were fairly boring (Doombar and the like). We were offered tastes before making our selection. What I was quite impressed by was the well-chosen bottle selection with various interesting options from Kernel, De Struise and the like. We did not eat, but the food looked good. Much better than expected considering I am not meantimeís biggest fan. The must-visit when in Greenwich.
